When you need to give someone a really quick overview of a complex or lengthy topic, an infographic can be a good approach.
Infographics are great for making complicated information easy to digest. Consider using one anytime you want to:
Provide a quick overview of a topic
Explain a complex process
Display research findings or survey data
Summarize a long blog post or report
Compare and contrast multiple options
Raise awareness about an issue or cause
These templates have been designed with accessibility in mind. The minimum type size has been set. DO NOT make type smaller to fit more text into the layout. If you require more text, create a page on your website and direct your audience there.
